For the fifth year running, the Governors Ball three day festival will take place in NYC.
Drake, The Black Keys, Florence And The Machine and Lana Del Rey are among the names confirmed for this year’s Governors Ball, to be held in New York’s Randall's Island from June 5th to 7th. The festival will mark the first time both Florence And The Machine and Lana Del Rey have played in NYC since 2012.

Speaking as the line-up was announced, Jordan Wolowitz, a partner at Governors Ball producer and promoter Founders Entertainment said, "We're thrilled to announce the 2015 lineup for Gov Ball, which we feel is our strongest yet. This June will be a celebration of our 5th anniversary as NYC's premier music festival."
"We would like to send our most sincere thanks to the fans and artists across the globe that have helped make Gov Ball what it is today, as well as to the Randall's Island Parks Alliance, who has been an incredible partner to us over the years. See everyone June 5th! It'll be one hell of a party,” he added.
Last year the festival was headlined by a returning Outkast, along with Jack White, and Vampire Weekend. Both regular and VIP weekend passes for the event are now available at governorsballmusicfestival.com.
